The EuroCRIS Conference of May 2006 in Bergen, Norway, marked the 15th anniversary of the EuroCRIS organization. The contributions to this conference, collected in this proceedings book, illustrate the tremendous evolution, driven by the revolutionary ICT-developments of the 90’s, which has taken place in these 15 years concerning research information in general and research information systems (CRIS) in particular.

Whereas at the start of EuroCRIS in 1991 the few at the time existing current research information systems still were a matter of rather static terminal-mainframe configurations, aimed at and mainly used by local research administrators for administrative report purposes, today these systems, now in place in almost every European country, have evolved into interactive multifunctional and multi-user applications, internationally accessible and of an ever growing significance and importance for researchers and the research community as such.
